first_imgDear Editor,The parliamentary vote of no-confidence in the APNU/AFC Government since December 21, 2018, and the ruling of the CCJ, affirming the validity of the no-confidence vote on June 18, 2019, and calling on President David Granger to call national elections is in keeping with the Constitution and the rule of law. The CCJ’s call was also directed at GECOM and its Secretariat, to obey the Constitution and the rule of law, and noting that GECOM, a full-time body with perhaps a bloated staff, is required to be in a state of readiness to conduct election within 90 days.These wilful and brazen violations of the Constitution and the rule of law, by essentially a PNC Government, move Guyana away from the democratic norms, and closer to dictatorship with the confident reliance on the police, the army, the public service, GECOM’s partisan staff for its continued usurpation of power, as was the case of the of the dictatorship of PNC Government from 1968 t0 1992. History seems to be repeating itself in 2018-2020 by the PNC-dominated Government.The vast majority of the population of Guyana applaud and are grateful to the many voices of individuals, organisations, and the international community condemning the constitutional and rule of law violations, principally to hold on to power unconstitutionally and illegally. These illegal actions of the Government, the President, Vice Presidents, Ministers, Government Members of the National Assembly, some GECOM Commissioners, and GECOM senior staff, and heads of the Public Service Ministries must be condemned and sanctioned. International sanctions must be applied to these groups in the interest of democracy in Guyana. The international community has options as was done in relation to some other countries. Such options include but are not limited to:– Overseas travel restriction;– Suspension of travel visas, whether ordinary or diplomatic;– Revocation of visas; and– Freezing of assets overseas.A majority of Guyanese are confident that such actions by North American and European counties will help to restore and protect democratic norms of obedience to the Constitution of Guyana and the rule of law.Yours faithfully,Joshua Singhlast_img read more

first_imgTwo internationally distinguished African Artists have a dream of introducing a new phenomenon that would engender African culture amongst artists (musicians, actors/actress, visual artist and others from countries around the continent. Liberian international Curator, Sarah Güsten-Marr and Sir Black (Kojo Yibor) have embarked upon an endeavor that intends to acquaint artists with the culture of their counterparts in other African countries.Sir Black is the founder of Ehalakasa Ghana and Güsten-Marr is the founder of GalleryGM, Yorkshire England and a philanthropist. They joined forces to create this new initiative called “Cultural Crossings“.Cultural Crossings will yearly provide the opportunity for chosen Liberian or Ghanaian artists to explore other African cultures in other countries. Güsten-Marr, who was orphaned from birth, already runs her own international artist in resident program in England. Her mother died while giving birth to her and she was adopted by a German family from that day.The launch of the initiative was held at the Best Western Premier Hotel in Accra recently where Güsten-Marr and a Liberian international actor, Omanza Shaw were in attendance.“The both of us passionately bout this project because we believe the importance of cultural understanding and this is what we want our artists on the continent to be doing. We want a better image for Africa out there. Let us tell our own stories and let’s stop the strangers from doing that because they will just say anything they want to say which necessarily does not portray Africa’s positive image,” she told the Daily Observer in a telephone conversation from her Yorkshire home in England. The Cultural Crossing project is firstly focusing on Ghanaians and Liberians Artists and the success from this pilot project will leads to its extension to other parts of the continent, Güsten-Marr said.Traveling means finding education and knowledge and their plan is to network the African talents/minds. Sarah and Sir Black want to empower these local artists. “One of my major motivating factors was Rocky Dawuni. He has been a very great inspiration for me and congrats to him on The Grammys – his nomination alone means a great win and we are proud of him. I’m honoured to have his wife/Manager here with us who passionately supports the dream as well as Rocky Dawuni does,” Sarah added.In addition to this initiative, Güsten-Marr has land in a subburd of Accra, (Kokrobite). She says this is where her next investment is to engage the school children at a foster facility there to engage in farming and hygiene, occasionally cleaning the community where they live.“This is a good way to help ourselves improve our health and agriculture and as well teach the younger generation how to live for themselves and not to grow up depending on others. I have pledged to support from the start with Ghc 500 to Ghc 1,000 every 8 weeks. BBC London is also supporting me and I gather lots of clothes within Ghana, Nigeria, and other parts of the world to bring to foster kids. I was raised an orphan too so it is very dear to my heart to care for these people. I am looking forward to building an exchange team in various countries to share ideas,” she said.Ghana Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Dzifa Gomashie, also graced the occasion and pledged her office unflinching support to the project. She is quoted as saying that “the Ghana culture forum group would get some form of funding to support the Ehalakasa group and the Cultural Crossings initiative.”Present at the occasion were notable figures like Daddy Bosco, celebrated actor Omanza Shaw (of ’Deadly Voyage’ and ‘Ultimate Paradise’ fame) of Liberia and others prominent Ghanaian Artists.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgCVI camp, Konobo District, north-eastern Grand Gedeh County, believed to have been in existence since the 1960s. The town is about 4 hours on foot from the Zwedru-Harper highway.A rapid increase in alluvial mining activities in the southeastern part of Liberia is creating concern among many about whether the government is actually in control of the huge gold deposits in that part of Liberia, especially Grand Gedeh, Grand Kru, Sinoe and River Gee counties, among others.A Daily Observer tour of two of the affected mining counties, Grand Gedeh and River Gee, established that the extent of alluvial mining has evolved to the use of yellow machines to extract the gold.In the mining camp of CVI in Konobo District, Grand Gedeh County, thousands of Liberians and foreign nationals are engaged in the mining of gold, using excavators to mine the precious metal. CVI camp, believed to have been sparsely populated during the 1960s, now hosts more than 10,000 people living in conjested quarters at the foot of a mountain about 4 hours walking distance from the Zwedru-Harper highway.It is believed that at least a kilogram of gold is extracted daily.But the questions many have asked are: Where is the gold going? Who are the buyers? How much revenue is the Government of Liberia reaping from southeastern gold mining? What mechanism has the government put in place to deter smuggling?Alluvial mining in lower River Gee County“We are just confused about the flow of the gold,” said one Elder Younge.Referring to CVI, Philadelphia, and many other mining camps in the southeast, he said, “Our minerals are exploited daily with nothing to point to in terms of development in this region.”In CVI alone, over 10 excavators were seen actively working. These excavators are owned by miners, either Liberian or foreign.“We paid 40 grams of gold to an excavator owner for 8 hours working, and you pay before work,” said one Samuel, a miner.“The use of heavy machines to carry on mining will likely deplete this area very soon, because the people are taking over 10 to 20 kilograms of gold from these areas weekly,” a cook shop owner in the camp explained.Around River Non in Grand Kru, in the community called Joweiken, miners are using floating dredges to extract gold from the river. Most of the dredge users are Ghanaians, believed to be expert in alluvial mining brought into the country by Liberians.Floating dredge used by Ghanaian miners on River Nor in Grand Kru CountyDespite the huge deposit of gold in these areas, road connectivity and developmental initiatives remain a major challenge for the citizens in the region.There are no good schools or clinics in any of the camps, where dozens of kids and school-age children are living with their parents.There were checkpoints in and around the camps, manned by immigration officers and other paramilitary forces, including the Liberia National Police (LNP), but those living in the mining town camp said it is only traditional ‘devils’ that impose law and order whenever there is violence.Gibrel Zoway, an agent of a local cooperative known as CVI Mining and Agriculture Cooperative Society, told this reporter that the cooperative is working along with miners to have the CVI community accessible by road.“We rehabilitated the road from the main road to this mining camp without any help from the government, and we did this to bring relief to the inhabitants of this locality as well as the miners,” he said.During the time spent by this reporter in the areas mentioned, there were no local government officials available. When inquired about, we were told that they had gone to Monrovia to hustle for jobs.“Our efforts in this CVI area have created jobs for many destitute Liberians, who were on streets carrying out lawless acts and creating havoc for others.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img Wembley Stadium 1 England’s friendly with France WILL go ahead at Wembley on Tuesday night, the French Football Federation have confirmed.The terrorist attacks across Paris on Friday, which claimed the lives of more than 128 people, had left the match in severe doubt.The English FA announced late on Friday that they would hold discussions with their French counterparts over whether to cancel their Euro 2016 warm-up clash next week.But the FFF have decided that, in a show of defiance, the match should still be played.“President Noel Le Graet confirmed on Saturday that the match between England and France scheduled for Tuesday November 17 (8pm local time) at Wembley will still take place,” read an FFF statement.Three of the victims of the terrorist attacks across the French capital were killed in explosions outside the Stade de France during France’s friendly with Germany.President Francois Hollande was among thousands of football fans watching the match, which continued to its conclusion.A total of six locations were attacked in and just outside Paris, with at least 128 feared dead.UEFA issued a brief statement on Saturday morning regarding the attacks.It read: “UEFA is deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic events which occurred in Paris last night and wishes to express its support and solidarity to France and to those affected by these horrible acts.”last_img read more

first_imgGareth Austin pictured with Joanne Butler and Gweedore man John Ferry in the Ionad Naomh Padraig community garden in DoreThis week our man in the garden Gareth Austin had a chat with North Donegal community gardener Joanne Butler and Joanne took some time away from sowing and growing to share her story with Gareth… It has been well documented in recent years about the benefits of gardening. Not just the getting out in the fresh air bit, or the growing a wee bit of veg bit … but the bit that goes on in between , in fact the bit we sometimes don’t even know about !It’s all in the head.. Literally! Stress; let’s face it, its part of our everyday lives now. What we see is a world that’s changing all the time … we stress about money, we stress about our family, we stress about the environment. The list is endless. It’s all around us. But there comes a time when we just have to stop. Take time. Breathe.For me that is what gardening is all about. Learning to grow, learning to nurture what we have got, and learning to take time out for ourselves. To de-stress.And of course that leads me onto where I found my time, my solace and my way of life.Gardening for me is about looking straight into the face of Mother Nature and smiling. Joanne Butler with the St Conals garden crew last HalloweenWhen I discovered gardening I found a new way to relax and enjoy the little things in life, I don’t take it too seriously and I have fun along the way. From the very first seedling in the spring to the last harvest of the autumn, and some … it really is a force to be reckoned with.At the community gardens we have found a way to harness all this fun, meeting new people and learning new things. As a facilitator of various community gardens in Donegal, it’s not just about me standing in front of a group of people telling them about soil or how to grow and protect our crops – it’s about us all coming together sharing experiences and finding old and new ways to grow vegetables and flowers.In some gardens we have started from the bottom up taking new patches of ground and turning them into little pockets of sunshine, in other gardens we work from the top down, restoring a polytunel or garden back to its former glory. But I certainly couldn’t do any of this on my own , as the saying goes ‘it takes a village to raise a child ‘ and that’s exactly the same for the community gardens !Sowing, planting and eating … together. The ingredients are simply People and Nature.Young or ‘Slightly older’, beginners or pros, community gardens are always on the lookout for some of these ingredients.So, if you need to reconnect with nature, or that a wee bit of fresh air might do you the world of good this spring, then have a think about all the benefits you might get or might bring to a community garden near you. Leave the woes behind for an hour or two and I promise you, the stress levels will thank you for it. Even if it’s just to make the tea and have a chat you are more than welcome and the community garden would be more than happy to have you on board. Everyone grows in different ways, and that’s not just plants I’m talking about.OUR community, OUR Food, OUR Future.Joanne Butler runs OURganic Gardens and is a facilitator of various gardens in Donegal . This spring she will be running workshops is Ards Walled Garden , Dunfanaghy , Gortahork , Mountcharles , Ardara and Portanoo .

first_imgLá na gClubThe club are staging a Lá na gClub on Sunday 8th May at 3 pm in Father Tierney Park. There will be a flag raising ceremony with music from the Ballyshannon Brass and Reed Band. This will be followed by a sports day in the Park which will feature penalty kick competitions, poc fada, races, and many more fun events. Refreshments will follow in Aras Aodh Ruadh. Please come along for what will be a proud day for our club. FootballAodh Ruadh recorded a five point victory over Urris last Saturday to chalk up their fifth successive win of the league campaign. It was tit for tat in the opening stages, with the lead changing hands three times. However Aodh Ruadh turned on the style before the break hitting an unanswered 1-4 to go in leading by 1-10 to 0-7, David McGurrin scrambling home the Ernesiders’s goal. Ballyshannon went into a seven point lead at one point in the second half, before the hosts trimmed it back to leave the final scoreline Urris 0-14 Aodh Ruadh 1-16. We have a full report from the game up on reserves made their longest trip of the season to Clonmany with just the bare 15. The lads gave a great account of themselves and can point to a few harsh refereeing decisions ultimately being the difference between the sides. It was tit for tat for the opening quarter, with points from Anthony ‘Waddle’ Coughlin and Francis McShea keeping the sides tight. However, Urris were awarded a soft penalty when a shot on goal was deemed to have been foot-blocked. The resulting goal and a further few points from the hosts saw them take a healthy half time lead of 1-6 to 0-3, the other point of the half for Aodh Ruadh coming from Ryan Granaghan. Aodh Ruadh worked hard through the second half and tagged on a few more scores through Ryan Patton and the Granaghan brothers, but were unable to make any real inroads in reducing the gap. That was until Waddle Coughlin banged in the visitor’s first goal. However Aodh Ruadh took another body blow when Urris managed to rob possession and slot in their second major despite the visitor’s appeal for a foul in the build up. That stretched the host’s lead out to seven points. But with great fortitude the lads fought back again, and when Eamon McDonnell palmed in a cross goal pass from Waddle the game was back on. Further points from Waddle, McShea and Drummond and a volleyed finish from soccer man David Dorrian had the visitors within three points going into the closing stages. Unfortunately time ran out on the tired travelling 15 and Urris hung on to finish on a winning scoreline of 2-16 to 3-10. Best for Aodh Ruadh were Mickey Dolan and Packie McGrath in defence, Ronan Drummond put in a big shift and Francis McShea was lively on his return to the fold. We have pictures from the game up on Next up will be the visit of Letterkenny Gaels to Father Tierney Park on Saturday, 7th May. The reserve game throws in at 6pm, followed by the seniors at 7.30pm.A date for your diary. The senior footballers will be hosting a fund-raising quiz in Seán Óg’s on Friday, 6th May. All support would be greatly appreciated.Aodh Ruadh minors league campaign ended at the semi-final stages in Ballintra last Wednesday. The team played their hearts out, but came up five points short against Naomh Conaill. Once again Nathan Boyle played a captain’s role in midfield and was ably partnered by Conall Sweeny. Michael McKenna battled hard at half forward, while Jason Granaghan also gave a superb account of himself. Oisin Rooney came on and played through the pain barrier in the second half, and hit the back of the net into the bargain. The minors now have a break until championship in July.The under 14s will host Ardara this Friday at 6.30pm. Training continues on Wednesday at 4.30pm.Under 12 training on Tuesday, 3rd May from 5.15pm to 6.30pm. This will be an important tactical session as the league starts the following day on Wednesday away to Ardara. Our away games this year are against Ardara (May 4th), Killybegs (May 18th) and Glenties (June 8th) and we will need parents / guardians to help with transport to all these games. We are hopeful that there will be a good few parents interested in travelling to support the team and that transporting all players will not be a problem. However with such a large panel of players we will need to be well organised and sure of places for everyone in advance. We understand that many parents are just not able to drive to games, so we ask those who intend travelling to the Ardara game to contact management and let them know how many players they you can bring with them.Dates and venues for under 8 and under 10 blitzes have been released and are as follows.UNDER 10 GO GAMES Saturday 14th May @ 11.00amSaint Naul’s (hosts), Aodh Ruadh, Four Masters, Bundoran.Saturday 11th June @ 11.00amNaomh Muire (hosts), Aodh Ruadh, Ardara, Pettigo.

Your help with this would be hugely appreciated.HurlingOur minor hurlers were up against an exceptional Buncrana team in Father Tierney Park last Thursday. Although well beaten the lads showed great character throughout the game and kept battling to the end. It’s been a very difficult campaign for the lads but they deserve great credit for the way they competed all season, they are in action again this Thursday at home to strong Burt team.The under 14s had a bye last week. They make the long trip to Dungloe this Thursday.On Saturday the Donegal minors were in action against Tyrone. Brian Mc Henry and Conall Sweeny both made the starting 15. Disappointingly Donegal lost out to Tyrone 3-13 to 1-15.Well done to Ryan Keenaghan who represented Creevy National School in the Cumann na mBunscol exhibition game at half time in the Nicky Rackard Cup game in Letterkenny on Saturday. Ryan did very well and was on the winning Fermanagh team.On Bank Holiday Monday we hosted our annual Alan Ryan / Seamus Grimes under 14 hurling tournament. Eight teams from five counties took part in the tournament played in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh and Erne Gaels pitch in Belleek. The draw was made that morning and threw up the following groupings, in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh we had Aodh Ruadh, Keady, Drumcliffe and Easkey while out in Belleek we had Buncrana, Tuam, Naomh Eoin and Na Magha.Aodh Ruadh played Keady in our opening game and lost narrowly by four points to the Armagh men. We were well beaten by Easkey in our second game while in our final group game a good performance saw us run out comfortable winners against Drumcliffe.Out in Belleek Buncrana topped the group followed by Tuam, the stage was now set for the Alan Ryan Cup semi-finals between Buncrana and Keady and Easkey and Tuam, while the Seamus Grimes Cup semi-finals saw Na Magha against Drumcliffe and Aodh Ruadh up against Naomh Eoin. We produced our best performance of the day against the Sligo lads and in a nail biting finish came out on top by a goal setting up a final against Na Magha. Wins for Buncrana and Easkey wet up an eagerly awaited pairing for the Alan Ryan Final.First of the finals to be played was the Seamus Grimes Cup, Na Magha were a strong physical team and were well on top at half time, but fair play to our lads who put in a great second half only to come up short, losing out 6-5 to 3-3. The Alan Ryan final was an eagerly awaited a game and it certainly didn’t disappoint as two evenly matched teams tore into each other from the start. At half time there was only four points separating the teams with the Buncrana lads in front. The Inishowen lads put in a great second half and ran out convincing winners to claim their first Alan Ryan Cup.The presentation and refreshments took place in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh. Eddie Grimes spoke on behalf of the Grimes family while Martin Kerry Ryan spoke on behalf of the Ryan family. Alan and Seamus were fondly remembered by John Rooney, Eddie and Martin presented the cups to the respective team captains. So the curtain came down on a great day of hurling. Thanks are due to the following for making the day such a success.

first_img 3 3 Jurgen Klopp wants to be remembered for trophies at Liverpool, not for raising a smile in press conferences Liverpool are unbeaten in the Premier League after eight games Jurgen Klopp has said he does not want to be remembered as the “fun” Liverpool manager who failed to secure a trophy.The German celebrated his three-year anniversary at Anfield on Monday but despite taking the club to three finals, he has yet to win one. Klopp hopes he will be celebrating come May, preferably with a trophy in his hands center_img “Nobody wants to look back in 10 or 20 years and say ‘So the best time we had without winning anything was when Klopp was here. It was so funny and all that stuff’.“That’s not really something you want to achieve, we still have time to do something special and we know that to underline the development and progress, we have to do it.”Liverpool have been touted as Manchester City’s nearest challengers for the Premier League this season and are currently level with Pep Guardiola’s side and Chelsea on 20 points after eight matches, having yet to be defeated in the league.“If you think about it, we are maybe in the best moment for ages, but a few other clubs are the same and they made the same steps so that makes it really hard,” Klopp added. 3 Klopp has, in fact, lost his last six cup finals since winning his first with Borussia Dortmund in 2012.At his presentation as Reds boss in October 2015, he pledged to win a trophy within four years.But after three near-misses, the last in May’s Champions League defeat to Real Madrid, he admits he does not know when that claim will come to fruition.“I have said it a few times: I have no idea when we will win something, but I’m sure this club will win something,” he said in an interview with Premier League Productions.“I don’t know when so let’s have the best times of our lives until then.“Let’s enjoy the world, let’s enjoy the football, let’s enjoy the journey and it’s what we did so far – it was a good time. “It looks like we are really on a good way and the only thing I can guarantee is that we constantly develop.“Our little problem is many other clubs develop as well so it’s never that you improve 20 per cent and the others get 20 per cent weaker.“They try to do the same, to reach the next level, and that’s the challenge we all face. It is interesting, but tough as well.“As I said in my first press conference here, if anybody thinks that I can perform wonders then it could become really difficult in the future, because I can’t.”Liverpool return to Premier League action against Huddersfield Town on Saturday October 20, with LIVE AND EXCLUSIVE commentary from the John Smith’s Stadium.last_img read more
